Lego construction type of Green structural components for low-cost
To develop novel and environmentally-friendly geopolymeric binders produced completely from CDW by considerably less energy-intensive, more economical and easily applicable techniques of alkali-activation for green concrete production.
To assess and optimise the mechanical/durability properties of green concrete materials from the developed geopolymeric binders and aggregates acquired completely from CDW to maximize the amount of reused/recycled CDW.
To develop and test a dry connection between reinforced concrete prefabricated components in such a way that all elements can be demounted for reuse in other buildings.
To carry out physical tests on different structural components of the proposed reusable structural system to identify possible failure modes, deformation and resistance.
To carry out finite element simulation of various elements in the proposed structural system and connections, including a comprehensive parametric study to establish their behaviour.
